They play original songs written by the band with a blend of Country/Rock. The combination of lyric and music continues to grow the band’s fan base. Brothers, cousins, and Friends they hail from Columbia, Tennessee, just forty miles south of Nashville.
Buck Sixx is:
Chris Lovett lead vocals, acoustic guitar
Marc Craig vocals, keyboard, guitars
Jeff Dillehay lead guitar, vocals, banjo
Morris Dillehay bass guitar, vocals

“Buck Sixx’s debut record is one of the strongest freshmen records I’ve ever heard. There truly isn’t a bad song on the record and there isn’t a song that would turn fans off. Buck Sixx successfully showcases who they are as individuals, as a group, as musicians, as vocalists, and as songwriters and it’s a showcase that is uniquely fresh. It’s a package that will allow them to be recognized on many different avenues in the country music industry.” – Thatsmusictome.com
Influences include:
The Eagles, Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Travis Tritt, Zac Brown Band, George Jones, Marshall Tucker Band,38 Special, Pantera and many more.

The band’s self-titled CD was released in June 2012 to great critical and fan acclaim. Buck Sixx has sold-out every indoor venue it has played, and the strength of their CD, plus their live show, is what keeps fans coming back and keeps new fans coming in on a daily basis.
“Buck Sixx is truly one of the best up-and-coming bands I’ve ever seen. Their sound and vibe is truly their own and is one that is needed in country music. It’s a sound/vibe that is unique from what you hear on the radio, but in a way that is fan friendly.” -Thatsmusictome.com

What makes a band like Buck Sixx different with all of the talent out there? Honesty….it’s as simple as that. Buck Sixx speaks to the fans on a level of reality that they can relate to - real people, real loss, real love, real family - the real experience that is missing from music these days and that fans want back. The fans want Buck Sixx.
Also, being related helps in the ability to create, whether it is song writing or performing on stage. Buck Sixx has a connection that few, could have - and that is blood. Music runs through it, and when these five get into a room the music flows out with a little bit of all members in it.
Buck Sixx has played with such acts as: Restless Heart,The Grascals and The Bellamy brothers and appeared on Nashville’s Fox17 Tennessee Mornings show.
